We traveled through Boerne, TX (pronounced Bernie) on our way to Medina Lake. I think I gave myself a sore neck trying to see all the Main Street sights. The one that really caught my eye was St. Peters.
Here's a photo of where Medina Lake should be. The water is all but gone. Now it is filled in with trees and vegetation. There were cattle grazing on the far side below the old water level.
One more thing...we did not feed them near our motorhome. We learned that lesson from our neighbor. He is still getting deer loitering around his site and it has been almost a week since he fed them!
Oh! I almost forgot to tell you what I found at the Fredericksburg Trade Days. Trade Days is basically a Flea Market/Artists Booths plus food and it is huge. You can find just about anything there. I loved looking at the old buildings being used for some of the shops as well as some of the antiques for sale like old wringer washers and even old bed springs. I bet this is an upcycle artist's dream come true.
We spent a lot of time roaming around, but it was seeing these 2 vintage trailers that I found most interesting. Both trailers are a Serra Scotty. Check out the wheel well design. Very different. It is too bad they were not open. It would have been interesting to see inside of both of them.
I am thinking about a new mug rug in this vintage trailer style. I'm not sure how I will be able to incorporate the wheel well design. Something new to work on!
On The Cutting Board
I'm trying very hard to whittle down my fabric pile. I started by cutting up the fabric for the Layer Cake Recipe pattern. I was going to sew it together before starting another, but it seemed easier to do more cutting.
So....I started cutting for the Crazy 8 pattern. The two piles on the left were already done from a previous cutting frenzy for scrappy quilts. Now, I have four more theme-related quilts ready to sew together. But...wait!....there's more!....
I have been wanting to use the pink and black cat fabric for quite some time. Once I started cutting, I could not stop there. I wanted to applique a big cat in the center, so that is done. The quilt is coming out small - only 36 x 36. I need to add borders and I would like to add some length to it. I might need to get a little creative with the leftover fabric since there isn't a lot left.
